Barbados had to settle for second place when the MMX12 International Judo Tournament climaxed at the Garfield Sobers Sports Complex recently.

Martinique emerged as overall champions, dethroning Barbados by collecting 15 gold medals, four more than their arch-rivals on their way to capturing the title.

Barbados still had much to shout about when they won the junior and senior team titles in the Caribbean Judo Union Team Tournament which was held simualtaneously.
